project matriarchs:

mobilizing gen z in support of working caregivers.

 

Project Matriarchs launched in September 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic with the goal of providing relief to low income working caregivers in the form of free time. Since then, Project Matriarchs has piloted and scaled its free-to-affordable service matching college students with families to provide virtual academic support and childcare.

 

Project Matriarchs is also building a movement bringing Gen Z into conversations at the intersection of caregiving, gender dynamics, and intersectional identities with the ultimate goal of actualizing a future in which caregivers are genuinely cared for in the United States.

We envision a future in which caregivers—from those working for minimum wage to those at the executive level—are genuinely cared for in the United States.
